Electoral violence surges in Yucatan one week away from election day

One week away from election day in Mexico, red lights ignited the state of Yucata with violent acts in the municipalities of Celestún, Temozón and Tecoh.

For this reason, the presiding counselor of the Electoral Institute and Citizen Participation of Yucatan (Iepac), Maria de Lourdes Rosas Moya, urged political parties and candidates to keep calm during the campaign closure acts all over the state.

A few weeks ago, Mauricio Sahuí Rivero, candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party PRI, was the victim of an aggression in Celestún, and this weekend there were acts of violence in the municipalities of Temozón and Tecoh.

In Temozón, the state leadership of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) accused Faustino Canché Novelo, an official of that municipality, of attacking with stones, along with 60 other people, the municipal headquarters of that political force.

On Saturday it was learned of a clash between PAN and PRI members in the municipality of Tecoh. In the confrontation, a militant of the Institutional Revolutionary Party lost an eye.

According to information provided by the Attorney General’s Office, there are already reports of both facts. However, the folio of the research files was not released by the authorities.
